Air Force Materiel Command Commander, Gen. Duke Z. Richardson, made a guest appearance on The Contracting Experience podcast where he discussed the new AFMC Strategic Plan, lines of effort, links to larger Department of the Air Force enterprise objectives, and more.

“This plan was meant to be a call-to-action at every single level of this command,” said Richardson. “I think every Airman—military and civilian—should see themselves in this plan and can use it to spawn ideas at their level. I want them to view the plan as a roadmap.”

Richardson discussed the evolution and development of the AFMC Strategic Plan, and how a cross-functional team comprised of representatives from all six command centers influenced the final product. He emphasized the importance of ‘integration’ of efforts inside of AFMC and across the Air Force in helping the command to reach strategic goals.

Richardson also highlighted the plan’s focus on revolutionizing processes and making the already-strong AFMC team even stronger as critical to getting after the ‘how’ and ‘why’ across all areas.
